The investigation into the death of Mark Minnie who was one of the authors of the book “The Lost Boys of Bird Island” was done by Private Investigator Wouter de Swardt of Fox Forensics Private Investigators.

De Swardt was appointed by The Foundation for Human Rights (“FHR”) to do the investigation. After he had reported his findings to the FHR his mandate was ended. However, he then continued investigating the matter because he realised the story and the book were false and a fraud and that a great injustice had been done to the three former Ministers. He wanted Justice to be served.
